This year's theme is All About Her.

Theatre inspiraTO, the producers of the inspiraTO Festival, Canada's largest ten-minute play festival, is entering its 13th year. Each season, playwrights from around the globe are asked to submit a ten-minute play based on a theme. 24 ten-minute plays are selected. The inspiraTO Festival is held in Toronto in early June and provides over 100 theatre artists an opportunity to participate, network, learn and grow their craft.

It is an art form whose time has come.
